He also told himself after i left his city that if he did meet someone, he wouldnt let waiting for me get in the way of it as he didnt know how long to wait. He just never properly communicated this to me. Should I just move on or try the above?

See my problem. Big I know, can you help me?
So now that we’ve covered in great detail some critical action points you can take right now to move in the right direction towards winning back the person you fell in love with long ago, let’s dig deeper into the absolute top 3 steps you must take if you want any chance of calling him your boyfriend again.
It seems that relationships become completely different things over time. An initial relationship has completely different values from a ‘vintage’ relationship. Furthermore a relationship has different values depending on your age. When relationships being, both partners have a distorted impression of each other. They are high on emotion and are in the attraction stage thus those annoying little ticks that drive you insane are unnoticeable under all of the excitement. The middle stage is withdrawal. The chemicals start to ebb after about 2 years and this is where the rationalization arguments begin. Where you argue because you are irritated and project your withdrawal on to your partner because they are no longer on the pedestal that you yourself put them. Now this where most people say good bye, or sometimes through some sense of duty and loyalty they never resolve the problems they just endure them and the unhappy relationship continues. Some others they reach another plane of a relationship. Where that person becomes a part of you. You have gone through the withdrawal and now you are life partners you are one body. In this throw away world, not enough people have enough humility or self awareness to reach this level. They are too busy trying to find their next fix after during the withdrawal phase. Sad…
No matter how great it is to see him, you want to keep a cool head and avoid begging for another chance. Talk to him for a few minutes and then find yourself a reason to excuse yourself. Do this all with a smile on your face and a sincere warmth in your attitude – but don’t be afraid of making it clear that you’ve got other things to do and people to see.
Finally, it’s important to minimize the amount of time with your ex. In particular, try to avoid is doing attachment-related things together, which is anything where emotions run particularly high or low. You’ve had a crappy day and need to vent? Don’t call your ex. Something amazing just happened and you can’t wait to share it with someone? Don’t call your ex! Try to find other people who can fill that space in your life instead, and it will really help you to move on emotionally.
We have kept in contact ever since the break. He calls me almost every week for something. He has even told me he still loves me and that he always will. He also told me he missed me last week. He never discusses this gf with me.
If you listen to your heart, all you will hear is that you love your ex and you want them back. Instead, try to think with your mind. Be logical. Analyze the pros and cons of your relationship. Analyze the pros and cons of your ex. Analyze what your goals in life are and whether or not a relationship with your ex aligns with those goals.(Read: Should You Get Your Ex Back?)
Believe it or not, you’re getting over him right now. No matter what you do, no matter where you go, some part of you is getting over him. Time heals. In time, you’ll look back and you’ll be over him. Make sure and realize it; even if you didn’t want to get over him, some part of you will definitely get over him. The pain we live with a one of our best teachers, at least in some ways. It’s a beautiful thing to love someone, even if things don’t work out. You still love him, and that’s beautiful. You want the very best for him – even if that means a breakup. That proves that you really love him, that you’re not just concerned about your own happiness. Nope. You want him to be happy, even without you. More than that though, take very good care of yourself. Do the things that you love to do. Move forward. Take that course. Study that subject. Learn that instrument. Go to the concert, the movie, the play. Be with friends. Develop and self-actualize.
In either case, you are just going to get hurt and not get what you want; a committed relationship with your ex. If you are serious about getting your ex back, or being happy in your life, make sure you never force them for being friends or even decline their offer to do so; at least, not until you are done with step 2.
So yesterday I was like I don’t need him to admit anything. I know what I know so why am I waiting for him to admit it. So I was watching the football game and a text came in from him asking if he could rent a movie on my prime account. I responded “seriously? NO!” Then I told him he should ask Sarah the next time he needs anything. I proceeded to call him a f–ng a-hole and a liar and told him to lose my number. He responded called me bitter and a psycho and I should lose his number too. I replied “Better. Your number is blocked!” Which I proceeded to do. It felt really good. So I am here looking for how I can get over him. I mean I loved him and we were together a longtime. I was just disappointed that he didn’t tell me he was interested in some other chick. One thing I have learnt is a-holes always come back if WE let them! Not any more.
Hi Natasha! You’re awesome! My boyfriend broke up with me, and I’m feeling terrible… my question is, my bf was not a narcissist.. I made mistakes and I started to pushing him because he lived with his mother, he is 39… and I’m 31 and I didn’t felt his priority, we had plans to get married, I’m applying no contact since he broke up with me, I didn’t begged him and I was calm, that was almost a month ago and he hasn’t reach me…. do you think that this works for a man who is not a narcissist? He is not a bad guy.
Look at it like this, every relationship has problems, fights, and disagreements. But if you two broke up, then there was something very wrong with your relationship. You need to analyze what went wrong and realize whether or not it’s a good idea to get back together.
Well.. I had only two shifts with him this week. Wednesday went well so far but Thursday was a disaster… There is another girl working at the grocery store as well. I know her and I know they have known each other longer time. On Thursday I saw how she got more attention and I noticed that their chemistry is so different. I felt so bad on Thursday. When he came to work, he went directly to her to talk about something and totally ignored me.. didn’t even say hello. I don’t know why on Wednesday things looked so good. Or is it my head that make things look worse than it is. But I know he was hanging all day with her after work on Wednesday (I have heard that they have spend a lot of free time together) . I have a feeling I can’t get him back… I just can’t. She is more prettier. Thursday was so awkward. I still have 6 shifts together with him. Next week only on Monday and Saturday.
The only way to truly gain the benefits of the no contact rule is to follow it all the way through. That means that if you broke the no contact rule, the only thing to be done is to start the no contact period over again.
